National Entrance Test(TISS-NET) is computer based test and it is going to be held on 4-01-2020 and the duration of the test is 1:40 mins.I am afraid that you are not eligible with an active backlog for this test.Actually you quoted that your supplementary exam was on 20-12-2019 and I am sure that your results of that exam will not be announced anytime soon .So, there is no chance for you to write the TISS-NET exam.I wish you a better luck next time and make sure that while you are writing the test again in the next year, do not maintain an active backlog.
As per the official, 27% of the seats are reserved for candidates from OBCs belonging to the non-creamy layer as notified by the National Commission for Backward Classes.
Officially there is no any information about it, You might be considered as General category if your OBC certificate get rejected. But I would suggest you to contact the official to get the exact detail.
sorry to say this year you can not apply. the eligibility criteria is Candidates who will successfully complete, in all respects, all the requirements of their final year eligible degree (including all examinations) by Monday, June 8, 2020, are also eligible to apply.
or Those candidates who are in final year, but cannot submit the degree certificate and grade/mark sheet at the time of admission are required to submit these latest by September 30, 2020.
hope you may understand.
I think almost all the form filling procedure requires any one proof of your eligibility, either it is GATE or TISSNET,
As you have mentioned that your degree has not arrived yet so in that case you can upload your penultimate semester mark sheet or course completion certificate.
But at the time of counselling you must have all the details with you.
